Event Description

The Penn State Science Policy Society is hosting a panel discussion of Gerrymandering and proposed reform of Pennsylvania’s redistricting process. Fair Districts PA speaker Thomas Beatty will participate in the discussion, detailing the organization’s support of Senate Bill 22 and House Bill 722 to amend PA’s constitution to create an independent citizen’s redistricting committee. 

Fair Districts PA is a non-partisan coalition of citizens and organizations seeking to reform PA redistricting rules by taking the process out of the hands of party leaders and putting that process into the hands of an impartial, transparent, and accountable citizens’ commission.
